50th anniversary bursary to help students in need

As part of Giving Tuesday, Camosun College is encouraging donations to its 50th Anniversary Student Bursary Legacy Fund with the Student Society matching donations up to $15,000.

“Education is the greatest equalizer but the cost can be a barrier for some students,” says Geoff Wilmshurst, VP Partnerships at Camosun. “A bursary can be a real game changer by providing much-needed financial relief. Now is a great time to give to a student in need as your donation will be doubled and will be part of the 50th anniversary legacy of the college!”

The legacy fund marks Camosun’s 50th anniversary and will help students in any program experiencing financial need to attend college. Camosun alumni are an integral part of life on Vancouver Island.

From now until Nov. 30, 2021, all donations to the 50th Anniversary Bursary Legacy Fund up to $15,000 will be matched by the Camosun College Student Society (CCSS).

“The costs related to attending post-secondary education have never been greater and the Camosun College Student Society is pleased to be able to support the 50th Anniversary Legacy Bursary to help students in financial need attend Camosun College,” says Puneet Kaur, CCSS External Executive.

Donations can be made online.

Camosun, located in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, with campuses on the Traditional Territories of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples, is one of the largest colleges in the province. Established in 1971, Camosun now celebrates 50 years of delivering innovative, life-changing academic and applied programs.
